Wind-induced dynamic response and its load estimation for structural frames of single-layer latticed domes with long spans
Yasushi Uematsu, Takayuki Sone, Motohiko Yamada and Takeshi Hongo

    The main purpose of this study is to discuss the design wind loads for the structural frames of single-layer latticed domes with long spans. First, wind pressures are measured simultaneously at many points on dome models in a wind tunnel. Then, the dynamic response of several models is analyzed in therntime domain, using the pressure data obtained from the wind tunnel experiment. The nodal displacements and the resultant member stresses are computed at each time step. The results indicate that the dome
